Trading Power Examines Leadership Succession

(6-29-10) Trading Power—a new publication produced jointly by the Council on Foundations, 21/64, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy, and Resource Generation—examines themes of multigenerational leadership challenges in today's philanthropy, including the perceived lack of leadership opportunities for the next generation; what each generation can learn from the others while working together; and why and how to engage a new generation of philanthropic leaders.

In 2009, the Council on Foundations created the Next Generation Task Force to provide COF with expertise and guidance to shape programs and services to maximize the impact of and support for the next generation of philanthropists and philanthropic leaders. The members of the task force, all age 40 and under, are staff and trustees of corporate, community, family, independent, and international foundations of varying geographies and diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds.
